I got the idea for shooting Stanford Point on a day hike with Kristen last Autumn. We made some time for a quick overnight trip earlier in June 2020 and I was fortunate to have some lovely clouds form right at sunset. Hiking back to our camp I heard someone going "yoooohooooo" in a singsongy voice. What the-? As I got closer to camp there was the sound of Sia playing over a radio. "Great" I thought. "Just what I want is some joker playing a radio in the wilderness." By the time I got back to the tent it was completely dark, apparently the dance music was coming from our tent?! Turns out a bear had come walking very loudly right up to the tent, and Kristen, in a very Kristen way, had wanted me back asap but did not want to alarm me, so she yelled yooooohooo. I didn't work - I sauntered back enjoying the evening. She played the dance music to scare the bear off. I kinda thought the bear probably heard it and came looking for the party, but who knows?
